BURNLEY goalkeeper Joe Hart has issued a “come and get me” plea live on BBC TV.

The 32-year-old was a pundit as boyhood club Shrewsbury Town staged a remarkable comeback to draw 2-2 with Liverpool and take their FA Cup fourth round tie to a replay.

Hart had 24 hours earlier made just his third Clarets appearance of the season, all in cup competitions, as Sean Dyche’s side went out with a 2-1 defeat against Norwich.

In the build-up to the Shrewsbury-Liverpool game, the former England man was asked about life as a No.2 goalkeeper, Nick Pope the undisputed number one at Turf Moor.

"Awful,” said Hart, whose contract expires at the end of the season. “You just have to get on with it. Football owes you nothing. I was speaking to Alan (Shearer) before and it is really fun on the way up. But when you get yourself in a position where you are not doing what you believe you can do or what you want to do it is frustrating.

“With Adrian at Liverpool, they might play 60 games so it’s a different No.2 to what I’m doing.”  

When fellow pundit Shearer pressed him about whether he wanted to “get out and play” Hart replied “definitely”.

Lineker then quipped “he’s available folks” with Hart then doing a tongue-in-cheek double thumbs up the cameras.

His stance is no surprise to Burnley fans, Hart having been second choice for most of his time in East Lancashire.

Injuries paved the way for him to be the man in possession of the gloves at the start of last season after arriving from Manchester City in a deal worth in the region of £4 million.

A 5-1 defeat at home to Everton on Boxing Day 2018 however saw Dyche turn to Tom Heaton with his departure to Aston Villa seeing Pope handed the gloves.

Speculation has followed his every move since but as things stand Hart looks set to see out his contract at Turf Moor.
